HTML Noframes Tag Tutorial

Browser Support

Internet Explorer Firefox Opera Safari Chrome

The noframes tag is used to display content or message to users who are not using a frames capable browser.

Because framed sites aren't indexed well by search engines, the noframes element also provides a valuable way to feed content to the search engines, although most webmasters just use it to either tell visitors their browser doesn't support frames or to provide a link to non-framed content.

You can place anything between the noframes tags that you would inside the body element of a normal HTML page. The noframes element is placed inside a frameset, as shown below:

<frameset cols="15%,70%,15%">
<frame src="frame1.htm" />
<frame src="frame2.htm" />
<frame src="frame3.htm" />
Sorry, your browser doesn't support frames!

If you want your frameset to validate you have to use the frameset DOCTYPE. For your convenience I've linked to it below.
